This is an online programme in a virtual learning environment. It is run asynchronously so you do not have to be online at any specific time to take the programme. It is aimed at improving the capacity and quality of service in public service, private sector and civil society organizations. Subjects are offered in a graduated sequence that must be followed to enable learners derive a thorough understanding of the concepts and principles of the entire programme. What this means is that you must complete a requisite subject that enables you to proceed to a second subject. Difficulties would be experienced in a subject where the prerequisite was not followed as concepts and principles covered in that prerequisite subject would not be repeated and will enable your understanding of the second subject with ease. Also, the content is laid out in each subject in a way that gets harder as you proceed.
The programme allows for an outcome of two routes which learners can choose to follow either.
